About Villanova University

Compassionate Minds

In 1842, the friars of the Order of St. Augustine founded Villanova University. The Augustinians are one of the oldest teaching orders in the Roman Catholic church. Their commitment to love and service is reflected in the Latin words on the University's seal, which translate into Truth, Unity, and Love. More than a motto, it is a guiding philosophy for the Villanova community. This is a community where the words "truth" and "justice" are spoken daily, a place where the intellectual and spiritual come together, where academic rigor and Augustinian wisdom
nurture compassionate minds, compassionate minds ready to transform the world.
